When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things — not the great occasions — give off the greatest glow of happiness.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.
Mankind is a great, an immense family… This is proved by what we feel in our hearts at Christmas.
Pope John XXIII
Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.
The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others’ burdens, easing others’ loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
W. C. Jones
The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has not Christmas in his heart.
There is no ideal Christmas; only the one Christmas you decide to make as a reflection of your values, desires, affections, traditions.
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more.”
The Grinch from How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
